What You Will Like

The 2019 Dodge Challenger is instantly recognizable and one of the most distinctive cars at any price. With thoroughly modern underpinnings, the Challenger manages to maintain legitimate V8 muscle-car credibility while meeting modern expectations for ride comfort, handling and safety. Among coupes, the Challenger is surprisingly practical; it seats five people and Dodge says that it has best-in-class rear headroom and legroom; it also boasts best in class in trunk space. For the truly power hungry, the SRT Hellcat Redeye boasts an incredible 797 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque, with 0-60 mph coming in at 3.4 seconds, and a top speed close to 203 mph.

Introduction

Launched as a 2009 model, the Challenger is a modern-day revival of a 1970s muscle coupe of the same name. Again exuding unmitigated swagger, it’s a vivid reminder of the muscle-car era, brought up to date.

Performance is the byword for 2019. Dodge has launched the SRT Hellcat Redeye, replacing the 840-horsepower SRT Demon. With its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 churning out 797 horsepower and 707 pound-feet of torque, the Redeye can reach 60 mph in 3.4 seconds.

The regular SRT Hellcat’s V8 now produces 717 horsepower and 656 pound-feet. Hellcats flaunt a new functional dual-snorkel hood. Compared to the departed Demon, the Hellcat is a more settled-down car for street or track.

A new R/T Scat Pack 1320 option package adds much of the Demon’s drag-focused equipment.

The full lineup consists of SXT, GT, R/T, R/T Scat Pack, and the two Hellcats. SXT and GT are available with all-wheel drive as an alternative to standard rear-drive. Hellcats and R/T Scat Pack come in standard or Widebody form.

A 305-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 goes into SXT and GT models, sending 268 pound-feet of torque through a smooth-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission. A scooped hood is fitted.

R/T models use a 375-horsepower, 5.7-liter V8 that produces 410 pound-feet of torque. A 485-horsepower, 6.4-liter V8 that develops 476 pound-feet powers the R/T Scat Pack. Either a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic transmission may be installed. Automatic reduces R/T power/torque ratings slightly.

The SRT Hellcat draws its fire from a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that makes 717 horsepower (up 10) and 656 pound-feet, with a 3.5-second 0-60 mph acceleration time.

The new SRT Hellcat Redeye unleashes a 797-horsepower version of the 6.2-liter V8. It’s the previous Demon engine with a different hood scoop and tuning.

Challengers are short on safety technology. A rearview camera is standard. All except SXT get rear parking sensors. Adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts and forward-collision warning are optional, but automatic emergency braking is unavailable.

Crash-testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Challenger five stars overall and for side-impact, but only four stars for the frontal crash and for rollover prevention (a calculated figure). NHTSA doesn’t rate SRT models.

Ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety could be better. The 2019 Challenger got a “Marginal” score in the stringent small front overlap test. Moderate-overlap and side-impact tests were rated “Good,” with roof strength judged “Acceptable.”

Lineup

Prices do not include $1,495 destination charge.

SXT ($27,845 with rear-wheel drive, $30,895 with all-wheel drive) holds a 3.6-liter V6 and includes houndstooth cloth upholstery, keyless entry, power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, rearview camera, 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

GT ($30,395 with RWD, $33,445 with AWD) has V6 power and adds a performance-type hood with functional scoop, performance-tuned steering and suspension, plus 20-inch wheels.

R/T ($34,295) gets the 5.7-liter V8 with rear-drive, active dual exhaust, and bright pedals. Either 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic may be installed.

R/T Scat Pack ($39,995) uses a 485-horsepower, 6.4-liter V8, adding heated cloth performance seats, four-piston Brembo brakes, Line Lock, Launch Control, SRT Performance Pages readouts, and 8.4-inch touchscreen.

SRT Hellcat ($60,695) contains the supercharged 717-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8, with After-run Chiller, adaptive damping, and six-piston brakes.

SRT Hellcat Redeye ($71,695) has the 797-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8, functional dual-snorkel hood with cold-air intake, and Torque Reserve.

A wealth of option groups is available, including R/T Scat Pack 1320, T/A, R/T Classic with stripes, Blacktop, Widebody, Shaker scoop, Performance Handling, and a Technology group with safety features.

Walkaround

Basic Challenger appearance hails from the 1971 model, but its modern-day successor is bigger and even more muscular. That’s especially true in Widebody form, with tacked-on fender flares adding 2.5 inches to overall width.

Accompanying the wide, deeply-inset grille, bracketed by round headlights, are various types of hood scoops, depending on model. Prominent rear haunches and a low roofline add to the appeal. Performance-tuned trim levels get a rear spoiler and front splitter, but even the base model looks menacing. Performance models get more aggressive hoods, fascias, and spoilers.

Interior

Clearly suggesting the 1971 model, the Challenger’s dark, driver-focused cabin features a dashboard that aims toward the driver. Houndstooth cloth upholstery is borrowed directly from that early-day Challenger. Materials are fine-quality.

Because the Challenger is a large coupe, it excels in space and comfort. In front or rear, occupants enjoy stretch-out room.

Front passengers occupy nicely-bolstered bucket seats with somewhat flat seatbacks. Even the seats in performance models are sized for American physiques.

Three passengers can fit in back, but less comfortably than in a sedan. Getting back there is a challenge, too.

Dodge’s easy-to-use infotainment system is especially appealing with the 8.4-inch screen. Trunk volume measures a sizable 16.2 cubic feet, but liftover is high.

Driving Impressions

Indisputably big and heavy, the Challenger is showing its age. Compared against its Camaro and Mustang rivals, a Challenger isn’t nearly as sporty.

With the refined V6 engine, a Challenger delivers a decent quantity of gusto. R/T drivers can expect abundant American-V8 thrust. With either a manual or automatic transmission, the alluring V8 rumble awaits.

Additional power supplied by the Scat Pack’s V8 is especially evident at higher engine rpm, and engine sounds resemble those heard at NASCAR events. Acceleration to 60 mph takes a mere 4.4 seconds.

Riding more smoothly than its natural rivals, the larger Challenger is capable of rounding corners quite nicely. Though it offers some track capability, Dodge’s hottest coupe cannot qualify as a sports car like the Camaro. Each Challenger version has a distinct personality, largely based upon suspension tuning.

Handling with competence, the base SXT promises a soft and compliant ride. GT and R/T editions are firmer but not harsh, less prone to body lean.

Firmest ride comes from the R/T Scat Pack, which is the most track-focused model. All Challengers are suitable for daily driving, but the Scat Pack takes corners crisply, while providing greater road feel. SRT Hellcats are actually a bit softer, with neutral handling.

Widebody versions handle better than their standard siblings, applying a tighter grip to the pavement. Through turns, they provide a more planted, stable attitude.

Hellcats come with big, highly effective Brembo brakes, which are recommended as a Scat Pack option.

V6 and base V8 engines are fairly quiet, though the latter will bellow when pushed. Bigger V8s announce their presence with authority, but quiet down when cruising.

As expected, fuel economy varies with the powertrain. Most efficient are rear-drive V6 versions, EPA-rated at 19/30 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined, using regular gasoline.

Dodge recommends premium fuel for the R/T’s 5.7-liter V8 with manual, but mid-grade for automatic. Manual shift is EPA-rated at 15/23 mpg City/Highway, or 18 mpg Combined. Automatic is estimated at 16/25/19 mpg.

Models with the 6.4-liter V8 are EPA-rated at14/23 mpg City/Highway, or 17 mpg Combined with manual, versus 15/24/18 mpg with automatic. Both supercharged Hellcats are EPA-rated at 13/21 mpg City/Highway, or 16 mpg Combined with manual, and 13/22/16 mpg with automatic.

Summary

Few performance-car lineups are as varied as that of the Challenger, which scores highly on both style and power. Best bet for performance-minded buyers is the R/T Scat Pack, but other versions also promise a powerful engine and comfortable ride – plus track-capable handling skills. No Challenger matches Mustang or Camaro for nimble moves, but the well-equipped Challenger promises a more comfortable character overall.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
